The Greenville City Council voted to name the Greenville Transportation Activity Center for First District Democrat Congressman G.K. Butterfield.

The project costs over $7.1 million — with local funds making up $800,000.

The majority of funding is from federal transportation grants.

The hub will be located on South Pitt Street and Bonners Lane and will provide a centrally located transfer facility where local and regional transportation services can connect.

Construction is expected to be completed on the 9,500 square foot facility in the spring of 2018.

3 Crazy Business Lessons from B’s Barbecue – Pulse

The Political Agitator response: This is my favorite eating place. They cook their chicken and barbecue like my daddy and I with charcoals. This is the only place that have real barbecue chicken in this area however a restaurant recently opened in Princeville that have good pit cooked food also.

Located in Greenville, NC, in an old country store that almost looks abandoned, lies one of the greatest Eastern-style barbecue joints in North Carolina. How do I know? Partly because it has been featured in newspapers, books, magazines, and television programs for years; partly because of the line out the door every day at lunch; and partly because, like many others, I go out of my way to get their barbecue.

The food at B’s Barbecue is amazing but don’t expect any extras from this hole-in-the-wall restaurant. The have no phone, no website, no air conditioning, and no posted hours of operation except an old, hand-painted sign that says, “Closed Sun and Mon.” B’s opens “generally” at 9:00 AM and customers know to get there early because B’s shuts it’s doors when the food runs out. Their famous Eastern-style barbecue sauce is not sold in stores and not available on the Internet. You can only find it in the old Crown Royal bottles located on the tables. (Source: Read more)

Dixon dismissed 10 taxi driver cases – The Daily Reflector

Cases that prompted an SBI investigation into a prosecutor who was fired Wednesday involve a Greenville taxi driver who faced two dozen charges between 2008 and March.

Court records show 17 of those 24 charges were dismissed. At least 10 were dismissed by former assistant district attorney Faris Dixon; three were dismissed by two other prosecutors. Computer records do not list the assistant district attorney for the remaining four cases, and the files that would name the prosecutor have been destroyed per policy at the clerk’s office.

Open Letter to Attorney Mark Bibbs What In The Hell Are You Talking About?

I just read The Daily Drum Newspaper out of Pitt County and I found your campaign article “Attorney Bibbs Fires Back” to be somewhat ignant and comical. I can’t believe you had the audacity to say such bullmanure.

You begin talking about your opponent, incumbent Jean Farmer-Butterfield being ranked 115 out of 120 members of the NC House. So Bibbs who did the ranking? Hell when the Democrats were in the majority the Republicans were ranked low and now since the Republicans are in office well. But damn compare her ranking to the work she has done and report that.

You say, “Jean is not married to G.K. Butterfield any longer and has not been for atleast two decades and that she is using her last name to try and slide back in on G.K.’s coattails.” Damn my friend I was there back in 2002 when Jean Farmer-Butterfield was elected the first time. I could not vote for her then nor can I vote for her now. However hell yeah I am concerned about who is elected to the NC House District 24 and all seats on the state level because I recognize and understand that they will represent me although I can not vote for them. Damn you disrespected my Congressman because you didn’t refer to him as a Congressman. I was redistricted out of his district so I can not vote for him either but he will always be my Congressman. But damn you said “G.K. is, and always will be your friend.” Really?

Some people in Rocky Mount asked me to attend a campaign meeting in 2002 and I am glad I did. I worked on her campaign and at no time did I ever hear anyone say that Jean was using the name Butterfield to get elected. I also attending some meetings in Wilson County. Since 2002 I have never heard anyone say such ignant mess. Damn that is the best you can do.

Damn you talk about you will tell the truth if you are elected. Well why would I want you to represent me when you are lying about Rep. Jean Farmer-Butterfield using the Butterfield name to get re-elected? Are you saying that is what she has done for 6 terms?

You didn’t mention your residency issue in the article however when I heard about some were talking about it, I said that is not an issue to dwell on because establishing a residence is not worth challenging unless it was something that he really can be challenged on. Well sir, I would say you have a real challenge on your hands with the city of Wilson. From what I read, it damn sure does not look good on your behalf but I am on the outside looking in and just going by what I read in the paper.

Sir again I ask the question, is it really worth it? SMDH!

See what the former Rep. Edith Warren, Senator Don Davis and other supporters had to say about Rep. Jean Farmer-Butterfield representation of Pitt County long before she was redistricted into their district. All of those who spoke made sense to me.
